Traditionally, panna cotta is an Italian dessert served with simple maple syrup or honey. However, we can always add our own touch to any dessert, right? So, I decided to make good use of plums we're getting this summer, some basic vanilla panna cottas with homemade plum syrup!
250 ml- full cream milk
250 ml- fresh cream
2 tbsp- warm water
2 tbsp- Meron agar agar powder
2 tsp- vanilla extract
1 cup - sugar
FOR PLUM SYRUP-
5 pieces- plum
1 cup- red wine
1./ cup- castor sugar
2 tbsp- cinnamon powder
2 tbsp- honey
In a small bowl, add 2 tbsp of Meron Agar Agar powder to 2 tbsp of water, mix well.
In a pan, add full cream milk with fresh cream and simmer it for 10 minutes, DO NOT bring it to boil.
Add the agar agar mix to it and keep stirring it for another 2 minutes.
Turn off the flame and add vanilla extract.
Grease the containers with some vegetable oil before you pour the batter.
Refrigerate it for at least 2-4 hours.
FOR THE PLUM SYRUP-
Half the plums and remove the seeds.
Place them cut side down in a baking dish, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon powder over them.
Pour red wine and bake it for 20 minutes at 180 degree C.
Strain the liquid and cook it in a pan for 10 minutes in low flame and add honey.
Take the containers out of the refrigerator and take the panna cottas out, serve it cold with some hot roated plum syrup!
